Average Job Cost


The average cost to replace your drive belt is $25 - $75. Pricing may vary based on the type of car you have, as well as the type of (and quality) auto shop that you go to. At NuBrakes, our technicians come to your office or home to do the repair. We don’t markup our parts and have minimal overhead, meaning, we provide you a convenient and low-cost repair option.

When evaluating the cost of drive belt replacement, you may want to consider:

  • The quality and type of drive belts
  • Your vehicle's manufacturer and model
  • Auto shop’s labor costs


It’s important to be in tune with your drive belt replacement options and how the type of shop will affect the pricing they offer to you. Dealerships will always be the most expensive option for drive belt replacements. Traditional brick and mortar repair shops will typically provide more affordable brake repair prices than the dealership. However, mobile brake repair services, like NuBrakes, usually provide the best prices because they have significantly less operational overhead… And not to mention, a much more convenient experience… A true win-win.

What is drive belt?

The drive belt is made of strong rubber material located under your vehicle's hood and is used to give power to your engine.

It runs on the outside of the engine and is used together with the idler, tensioner, and pulleys.

How do I know when my drive belt needs to be replaced?

You can refer to these signs when you drive belts need to be replaced:

1. You notice that there won’t be any cold air coming out of the vent.

2. You hear a squealing sound which can be very noticeable during a cold morning before your engine warms up.

3. You experience a loss of power steering.

4. Your car is overheating due to your water pump not working which is caused by a broken belt.

5. If you inspect your car’s engine and notice cracks in the belt.

Is it safe to drive on a damaged drive belt?

You can start your engine and drive your car, however, it’ll be challenging and your car might not run for long. If you’re driving and your drive belt snaps, try not to drive too far and pull over to the side of the road for safety; this will also help you prohibit additional damage to your vehicle.

How often should I replace my drive belt?

Usually every 60,000 to 100,000 miles but you can always inspect your drive belts with a trusted professional mechanic and if there’s any sign of damage or extreme wear, then belts can be replaced.

Can I replace the drive belt myself?

1. Check the location of the belt
